In a household where guns are not used for sport, or hunting then I consider the desire for weapons or to use weapons- and seeing weapons as toys to be absolutely ill effects.  I consider the desire to see weapons played with, be it on you tube, tv or by others an ill effect.  I consider emulating the musical taste in some of the games (profanity), idealizing gang or outlaw imagery especially without regard that these can be quite serious to be an ill effect.  EG. Kid going to school showing off that they know all the words to songs that they shouldn't know can score you some fun talks with the school counselor. 

I don't really consider any of that to be an ill effect.  Other than the weapons as toys (to a certain point.  Depends on how you define that.  I have a collection of blades that I basically consider close to toys).  But then again, playing violent video games does not neccessarily lead to that.  You seem to be assuming an automatic causality.

Granted, I was always mature as a child.  However, I did grow up watching violent/etc movies as a kid (Blue Thunder for instance.  I remember watching Eating Raoul with my parents when I was...Maybe 8?).
